Voices of the trees

My tree story.
Living on the central Oregon Coast in the Pacific Northwest affords great opportunity for walking in the woods among huge old growth trees. I marvel at their beauty and feel a presence even from the giant stumps left over from logging a century ago. I walk with my dog several times a week on secluded forest trails behind my house. It’s quiet in the solitude save for the voices of the trees who seem to speak volumes.

Mockups with tree branches

Marijo and I have discussed for years what the design of the railing screen should look like. I did mockups with tree branches from the land to catalog design iron pieces that could be assembled into various configurations.

This is the design that finally won. It is framed in cherry wood from the land to match the cabinet, baseboard, door jams, and trim in the house.

It was cut from 3/16 carbon steel with water jet on which I sprayed a dark maroon color.
